The “Do Now:” A Classic with Potential


Forty (or so) minutes go by quite quickly. By the time we get our students seated, take attendance, check homework, explain the objective, and start the lesson, our allotment of time has dwindled considerably. Also considering how often our students are taken out of our classes because of field trips, visits to the nurse, or other various reasons, the clock often seems to be set on fast forward. Essentially, we want to get the most out of our class periods. The “Do Now,” offers an opportunity to get class started immediately. However, there are key factors to remember when implementing the infamous “Do Now.” Teachers enrolled in this course will explore the possibilities, variations, and applications of the “Do Now” as a means of engaging students immediately and getting the most of class time. This course is applicable to all educators, guidance counselors/social workers/psychologists, administrators, and any related service providers of all subjects, grades K-12.
